OMG!!! This stuff is beyond unbelieveble! All the reviews you are reading are sooo true! OMG, the reason I got this is because of all the fab reviews about it on here, and i thought why not give it a chance, anyway I'm SOOOOO HAPPY I did. OMG, ever since I've been using this stuff my eyeshadow doesnt even budge. I wake up for school at around 5:30am, but do my makeup at say around 6:00 am, it lasts from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm and LONGER! Before thius stuff it use to last for about 3-4 hours. One time when I was using this stuff, I was soo tired and left my makeup on and omg guess what? That next morning it was still on! Talk about amazing! I swear I would pay a lot more money for this stuff even if was sold at a higher price than it is now, because it's worth it and WORKS!!! yay! hehe So get this if you want your eyeshadow to last! :) Hope I helped. hehe :)
Firstly let me thank Alice (lissa_g) for recommending this primer...thank you, thank you, thank you!! ; )
This stuff is amazing. My e/s usually creases towards the end of the afternoon, esp if it has been a warm day. Cream shadows don't even last that long on me. I put this on in a thin layer, it disappears immediately and feels very slight tacky but not at all uncomfortable. I put my shadow on at 6.15 am and when I went to remove it at 12.30am the following morning it was absolutely PERFECT! Not a budge! It doesn't interfere with the e/s so it's still easy to apply, blend, smudge etc and it also held my eye liner in place perfectly. It costs £9.50 in the UK which is reasonable as I imagine the tube will last for some time.
One of the best products EVER!!
This is the first eyeshadow primer I have ever used and so far I like it. When I first tried to use it I put it on wrong by trying to keep layering it and it ended up smuding all over the place and then I couldn't get it off. Later I found out that it works better if you 1 put swipe on your lid and pat it all over you will have nice even coverage. It keeps your shadow/liner/whatever in place like no foundation ever can. Just amazing. This color is totally neutral and dries really quickly. I set it with powder just in case. I still don't know how I like the wand applicator. I've gotten used to it but there must be a better way.
This is the primer of the gods. I put this on at 8 am for work at a daycare. It can be very stressful and I often am sweating my butt off, but this lasted not only all through work, but through my shower later that night and taking out and putting in my contacts all day. It never smudged, creased, faded or anything. At 11:30 pm that night I took my makeup off, and it was still in place and didnt move until I wanted it to. If I touch my eye I notice it is a little dry (when the shadow is on, not that the primer dries out my skin) but its not itchy or bothersome, so thats not really a con. While I wish it was a little cheaper, I will pay for it again and again. On me (PPP) there is no color, but I think on a darker skin tone it would show up as a pale peachy color. Everyone should get this stuff. :P
This is so moisturizing, I'm actually astonished! The shade is of course a sheer pale neutral, like a concealer but so much smoother and no creases to be found! And can we say adorable bottle?
This is the best eyeshadow primer I have ever used. This comes with a wand applicator. The texture is not too liquidy and not too thick. It's an ivory color cream that prevents creasing and fading. After 12 hours, my eyeshadow was still perfect! This is the only eyeshadow primer I have used that actually does what it says!
AMAZING! This stuff is so wonderful-I'm so glad a person from BeAddicts recommended this to me. It's so great with all my Bare Escentual shadows, glimmers and glimpses. As most wearers of mineral makeup know-we NEED an eyeshadow base to keep the beautiful colors on for 8 hours.
I live in Southern California and the weather is unbearable at times. My eyeshadow is worn off and creasing and my lids look terrible-but now I don't have to even look in a mirror because I have this stuff on-so NO WORRIES! NEW HG DEFINITELY!
I have to add my rave as well. Of course I had high hopes from reading other people's reviews but I tried not to elevate my expectations too high. I am really pleased w/this in general. I have fairly oily lids so this sounded too good to be true. I've been using Almay's Amazing Lasting Concealer as a base. It works pretty well for me but it's really thick, a little sticky, & some of my lighter e/s colors didn't look the same in the pot as over it. Granted, I might not be using the lightest Almay shade so I'll have to double check. Anyway, Primer Potion is surprisingly light in terms of texture as well as color. It's kind of hard to see in order to spread around & it dries transparently so you wonder if it's doing the job. Let me tell you, it does. I've had very very minimal creasing, even when I wore my e/s to bed for experimental reasons. It still looked great in the a.m. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's hard to tell exactly how much is in the tube since it's opaque & the wand doesn't deposit a whole lot onto your lids but I don't think it takes much of this to get good coverage. This is reasonably priced. I think it's my new HG e/s base. I'd definitely buy it again,
I LOVE this stuff! For those on a never-ending hunt for the perfect e/s primer, this is it! I haven't touched my MAC paints since purchasing this stuff. What I like about it, is that unlike the paints, there is no color or pigment, so it doesn't interfere with the color of my e/s. Not only does it help e/s apply on smooth and even, but it seems to make the pigmentation more intense. It also makes my eye mu last very long... even after working out! I am very glad UD came out with this product.
I've been wanting to try an eyeshadow base for a long time, but I didn't know which one. (I thought about LM, PD, paints) I really like my UD eyeshadows, so when I saw the primer potion I was very interested....I read reviews here and knew I had to have it. It is everything I hoped it would be! I didn't think I had oily lids, but by the end of the day most of my e/s was gone....but not now with the primer potion! My eye makeup stayed on easily for 14 hours, and still looked fresh-amazing. I apply by dotting a small amount on my lid and blending with my finger. It feels very lightweight, and once I start blending I can't even see it it's so sheer. I picked this up at Nordstroms for a mere $14--so I will definately be repurchasing.
